COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, originally a summer seasonal, has been getting raves since becoming a year round offering in 1996. Garrett Oliver, a student of English brewing and beer history, uses English malts and hops to brew his EIPA in the classic, heavily-hopped style of the 19th century beers created for British soldiers serving in India.

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Opaque brownish-orange color. Medium white head which dissipates quickly with no lacing. Very citrus-y, floral scent. Similar taste, though not as strong as the aroma, hoppy with a touch of malt. Smooth, crisp feel with good amount of carbonation. Overall, a good beer, though far from the best IPA I’ve tried.

Hideipa (5) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2015 does not count
D’un orange brûlé, translucide, cette bière laisse un léger collet. Elle dégage des arômes florales et de pêches. En bouche, on ressent d’abord le malt caramel qui se combine à une amertume résineuse et sèche. Peu de fruits. Quelques traces d’alcool, une texture assez liquide, un corps faible à moyen et une carbonisation stable. En finale, l’amertume se dissipe rapidement laissant place au malt. C’est une bière qui se boit bien, typiquement American IPA,

didierlewallon (170) - ponferrada, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2015
Cerveza de color naranja oscuro con una espuma de color blanco. Destaca un aroma intenso a lúpulo fresco con notas florales, afrutadas y levaduras. El sabor es fuerte, un poco dulce y un amargor agradable. Una IPA muy buena.

berkshirejohn (4725) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. A slightly hazy amber pour with a thin cream head; aroma of Kentish hops with a touch of spice; bitter taste with a trace of lemon; and a rather vinegary before a dry finish.

HenriqueBraga (110) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 22, 2015
Âmbar escura, boa formação de espuma, embora não não muito persistente. Aroma de pinho, toranja, laranja, caramelo do malte. Na boca tem um amargor sem ser muito agressivo e um adocicado. Corpo médio. Boa carbonatação. Final doce e amargo.

Aromas of fresh lemon mixed with resin, very bright. Pours golden with small white head. Taste is slightly sour, lemonade-ish with medium bitterness. Average body and carbonation. Very refreshing. Great for summer.

Bork (355) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Low on pine for the style and heavily loaded with somewhat oversweet fruit. Hops are notable but less prominent than in the average IPA.

Vaiz (3601) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear deep golden pour, almost no head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramel malts, slightly spicy and a bit of yeast. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly sweet and a bit thin. Decent balance, thin body.
